Effect of the vegetarian diet on non-communicable diseases. [J Sci Food Agric. 2013] - PubMed - NCBI

Effect of the vegetarian diet on non-communicable diseases. [J Sci Food Agric. 2013] - PubMed - NCBI | Non-communicable diseases | Scoop.it
Abstract

Vegetarian diet generally includes plenty of vegetables and fruits, which are rich in phytochemicals, antioxidants, fiber, magnesium, vitamins C and E, Fe3+ , folic acid and n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA), and low in cholesterol, total fat and saturated fatty acid, sodium, Fe2+ , zinc, vitamin A, B12 and D, and especially n-3 PUFA. Mortalities from all-cause, ischemic heart disease, circulatory and cerebrovascular diseases were significantly lower in vegetarians than in omnivorous populations. Compared with omnivores, the incidence of cancer and type 2 diabetes were also significantly lower in vegetarians. However, vegetarians have a number of increased risk factors for non-communicable diseases such as increased plasma homocysteine, mean platelet volume and platelet aggregability compared with omnivores, which are associated with low intake of vitamin B12 and n-3 PUFA. Based on the present data, it would seem appropriate for vegetarians to carefully design their diet, specifically focusing on increasing their intake of vitamin B12 and n-3 PUFA to further reduce already low mortality and morbidity of non-communicable diseases.
